[chox] WiserEarth began in late 2004 ...


Preliminary work on WiserEarth began in late 2004
. In January 2005, the
Natural Capital Institute brought on researchers and technical experts to
begin building the database infrastructure.

Over the next two years, a global team of researchers and volunteers from
Cuimbatore, India to Guayaquil, Ecuador joined the WiserEarth project. The
team brought on volunteers with expertise in a greater variety of
languages; partnered with experts in open source software; and increased
data-collecting capacity by recruiting and training international research
teams. They researched and added publicly available data from the Internet
and other sources, honed the WiserEarth Content Standards, continued to
develop the database, and refined the structural elements.

What's Next?

WiserEarth will always be a work in progress. WiserEarth encourages and
invites people to take on leadership roles and help maintain an Area of
Focus portal, facilitate a resource category, support a help desk, start a
discussion, invite friends and colleagues, and present and promote
WiserEarth. Many more features need to be added including a WiserEarth
hubs, a meta calendar (allowing users to personalize event listings
according to their areas of interest, specific date ranges, and geographic
regions), a project builder to spur collaboration, blogs, a streaming
media site, and more social networking features. We hope WiserEarth
community members will donate their time and intellectual property to help
develop these features, and make WiserEarth a true global resource. The
history from this point on out is collaboratively written by all of us?the
